The title track from Danish soul pioneer Jonas EP All Systems Go gets a cinematically styled new video. Featuring the rap talents Kuku Agami and the virtually projected image of Sharlene Hector (Basement Jaxx), All Systems Go is a visual treat.
More akin to the styling of a science fiction novel seen in movies like DUNE, videographer Jacob Vinjegaard spectacularly visualises a desolate planet with two mysterious travellers. It’s captivating from the start and the aerial end shot is simply majestic.
In contrast, Jonas inhabits a musical landscape lush in organic neo-soul. And he’s been creating this universe for more than two decades. Insisting on the use of real instruments and soulful vocal arrangements, All Systems Go delivers a magnetic soul single.
“I have come to the realisation of what defines my sound. I no longer have to doubt what it is, or try to please anyone. My music is coming from a place of being mature and mostly deals with love. Acceptance of love, loving yourself and your fellow humans.” – Jonas
In Jonas’s world and ours, the future remains bright and wonderfully soulful.
